In this tutorial I will show you how to recycle a cigar box with Graphic 45 Farmhouse scrapbook paper. It’s super easy to do and could even be a kid’s craft project with a little adult supervision.
Now, Let’s Get Started!
To make your own recycled box the first thing you have to do is strip away the old loose tape on your box. Now, when completing that step it is important to remember to leave the tape on the hinge area so the new hinge will fit properly.
So, the box should look like this photo when all the tape is removed except for on the box hinge lid.
The next step is to add duct tape over the old hinge to reinforce it. The wood on this box was so old that the duct tape didn’t want to stick to it. Finally, I gave up and just glued it in place.
So, after the scrapbook paper has been picked out, it’s time to cover the rest of the cigar box edges. It’s works best if you use a large piece of paper on the back of the hinge extending well onto the bottom of the box, this way the new hinge will be fully supported.
When covering the edges of the box be sure and don’t cover the sides of the lid. The lids can be a tight fit, and most lids will tear the paper when the lid is opened or closed. Especially during normal use.
The next step is to apply the paper to the inside lid of the box. When that is dry you can add the paper to the sides, and bottom of the box. Now, you can add lots of fun accents like bling, stickers, or your choice of decorations.

For my own black and white photo, I wanted to choose an older, more rustic pattern paper style to match my photo. This Graphic-45-Farmhouse-12x12 Patterns and Solid Pad fit those needs perfectly. Lots of solids and prints that matched my photo’s old time charm.
First, I chose this lovely Graphic 45 pattern for my background page. An aged gingham, perfect for any vintage layout.

These papers, and many other scrapbooking products are available at the FotoBella Online Scrapbook Store. You will find their products are priced very affordable and they stock a wide variety of manufacturers to suit all of your crafting needs .
For my next step, I added the top sticker strip to this layout. It is was from the Graphic 45 Farmhouse Sticker Sheets. I love when companies make these matching embellishments for their paper packs. It makes crafting your project fun and easy. These farmhouse designs are perfect for any black and white photo.
Next, I added a strip to the top of my layout.
Then, I added another sticker strip onto some of the matching paper on the bottom of my layout. Super easy!
After, I then started to mount my photo onto some green and brown cardstock. Then, I flipped it over and added foam tape to the back of it so that it gave my layout some depth.
I Blame The Dog!
You’ll notice that the strips look a little frayed in places. That design element was added by the new puppy my grandson received. She decided she liked the taste of foam tape.
My next couple of steps, were to mount my black and white photo to the Graphic 45 page and add some other embellishments.
(I should have added the black corner mounts to my photo mat before gluing it on my paper. I unfortunately forgot to do this so I had to pry up my pieces and add them after the fact. )
Also, I used accent pieces that came from the Graphic45-Farmhouse Ephemera and Journaling Cards These cards are double sided and are fun to use. Like the other pieces, they fit into my black and white photo theme perfectly. This photo only shows a portion of the styles included in the Farmhouse package.
Next, I added more fun stickers and cards from the Graphic 45 Farmhouse collection to my black and white photo layout. These die cuts are so fun and easy to use!
Finally, I finished off my black and white layout I added brads, a twine bow, and some gems. I loved how it turned out! I hope you use this example to get your own black and white photos out of storage and in to your scrapbook albums.

Hi all, Jennifer Taylor here. Hope you are all staying well and doing lots of crafting! Today, I am here to share with you two scrapbook pages I made using the Echo Park Salon Collection from FotoBella.
Let’s Get Started!
First, For this page, I used the green Echo Park Salon 12 x 12 gingham paper as my base. Then, I used the left over 6 x 6 paper that I diecut butterflies out of for my basket project as my anchor for the right side of the photo and layering the floral paper underneath.
After I adhered those, I just kinda went nuts tucking in layers everywhere using chipboard pieces, stickers and diecuts. I added final touches with the tiny floral chipboard circles and enamel dots.
Finish your Echo Park 12x12 Page
Lastly, I outlined the butterflies with black marker to tie in the black around the page.
Let’s make the 8x8 Layout
For the 8 x 8 page that I made, I used a solid Echo Park Coral paper as the base then layered on the splash print paper. The color palette of this collection just reminds me of colors of Easter eggs.
So I made an Easter page.
First, I layered the floral paper and green pattern paper to the right of the photo. Then, I used the same technique as the 12 x 12 page, by layering all the bits of chipboard ,stickers, and diecuts around the photo til I was happy with it.
Next, I added the title with letters from my stash and even used the negative sticker strips from the scalloped sticker border the add the the edges of my layering. Finally, I finished this page with clusters of floral circle stickers and enamel dots.
( tip- don't forget to add the date to all your pages)
Alpha letters - from my stash

Hi all. Jennifer Taylor here. Today I am stopping by to share two A2 size card I made, using the Echo Park Salon Collection. These cards are great to send to a friend, that needs a lil encouragement.
Let’s Start the Cards
For both of the bases, I used the grey solid paper from the Echo Park Coordinating Solid Paper Pack. On this first card, I used the scalloped pink sticker strip to put along both sides.
Then, I added the backside of the diecut (white) as my card center. Next, I layered two more diecuts on top .
Finally, I finished with a chipboard mascara brush, a couple enamel dots and a doodled border.
Onto the Second Echo Park Card
For my second card, I distressed the edges of the card base for texture . Next, I adhered the largest diecut from the frame and diecut packs into the center of the card.
Then, I traced the banner design with a black marker to make it stand out a little more. Lastly, I added the chipboard floral piece to the bottom edge and put a black enamel dot into the middle to finish it.
I had a ton of fun playing with this collection... keep and eye out for the scrapbook pages I made in my upcoming post too.
Here is a list of the goodies I got for my design team box and used for the card project:
Hi everyone, Penny here! This month I was so happy to play with the Graphic 45 Farmhouse I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella.
Today I’m going to show you how to make a three photo scrapbook page with various size photos. It’s super easy and helps to cut down on all those photos you need to scrapbook.
Let’s Get Started
I started my layout by selecting 3 different photos. I left one photo in the standard 4 x 6 size, then I cut the other two photos down to fit the smaller areas that were left on my page. Then I choose my paper from this Graphic 45 12x12 Patterns & Solids Paper Kit.
My next step, was to mount my 4 x 6 photo onto more of the Farmhouse collection, and add the photo corners. Then, I placed another piece of the Graphic 45 pattern paper collection under the photo. (Remember to add your photo corners to your accent pieces prior to gluing them down) I didn’t glue these items in place yet however, because my ribbon will go underneath this photo.
To add this ribbon holder, first, thread the ribbon though the die cut. Then, I used brads from the Graphic 45 Collection, to hold the ribbon in place. I didn’t glue the die cut in place yet however, because I wanted to make sure it didn’t cover any of my photo placements.
When adding your other accessories and photos, I suggest you lay them out prior to gluing them in place. This way you can easily move things to accommodate your other three photos. Some of my Graphic 45 elements have foam tape under them to add texture to my three photo layout.
It was finally time to add my third and final photo to my three photo layout. I trimmed it down to fit the space I had left on my layout. Then, I added strips of Graphic 45 pattern paper and stickers.
Finish your Graphic 45 Layout
My final steps were to add the title alphabet stickers, and brads to my layout. Don’t be afraid to make your own three photo layout! Adding multiple photos to your layouts is a great way to help get caught up on your scrapbooking pages.
This wonderful storage system is fabulous! I have purchased several of these myself, and they are perfect for keeping your paper collections together with their embellishments. It also makes scrapbooking so easy when you can store all of your items together. Be sure and stop by again to see other fun projects and ideas! Love Penny
